A widowed doctor is hired to prove that the eccentric owner of a weapons company is insane. Handsomely-mounted jumpscare horror that doesn’t find much to do with its based-on-a-true-story premise, so settles for a few boos and no eews. Disappointing, given the talent involved.
Elise Rainier returns to her childhood home to face her fears. The fourth in the Insidious franchise is a prequel which loops back to part one. For series fans only, but well-enough handled in its jumpscares and creepy moments, plus one great idea, decently handled.
A young woman on vacation in Thailand is cursed, and has to fight off a demon intent on possessing her. Straightforward jumpscare horror with some interesting moments and a neat supporting turn from Mark Boone Jr.
A husband and wife team of exorcists battle a witch terrorising a family. Superior 70s-set jumpscare haunted house picture. Does nothing original, but delivers its shocks in style. A sequel soon followed.
A teen fears her new home may be haunted; the truth is perhaps worse. Straightforward jumpscare horror which takes time to set up plenty of plot possibilities before making its choice. Some decent moments, though also a sense of being edited to the bone, losing some subplots.
A realtor finds that the property she is trying to sell is host to a malevolent entity. Its odd structure and unwarranted ending aside, a reasonable entry in the possessed property jumpscare sub-sub-genre. Some neat moments among the standard shenanigans.
An artist and her estranged teen daughter battle a demon summoned by the girl. Standard jumpscare shenanigans with some interesting visual moments but hampered by confusing story logic which collapses the enterprise.
